Eltham toy wall

This is a hidden gem in the town of Eltham, Taranaki.


This bizarre but beautiful artwork began in 1997, when Fay found a child's toy car on the ground outside her home. She popped it atop a concrete wall for the child to find, but when the unclaimed toy kept falling off, she cemented it on.

After that, other children asked her to add their toys to the wall.

There are more toys inside the well. 


Next to the Toy Wall is this lovely little concrete village.
